I know at various times I've seen great reading recommendations and some of the same ones over and over (The Paleo Diet, The Omega-Zone, etc.) many of which I now own. Would anyone be willing to try their hand at recommending across the board...nutrition, O-lifts, Fitness, etc? I'll start with a few easy ones:-)

The Zone Diet by Barry Sears
The Paleo Diet by Loren Cordain
The Paleo diet for Athletes ""

My recommendation:

How I Found Freedom in an Unfree World by Harry Brown

Starting Strength by Rippetoe

I'm new to this and it is amazing.


P.S. I'd really like a part two with OHS, front squats, etc...

FLOW: The Psychology of Optimal Experience by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

It is a great book about the mental side of being in that perfect state when your activity just flows.

The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, by William Shirer. Should be required reading. It's worth investing a year to read, in my view.

Anything by Paul Johnson, with Modern Times an excellent starting point.

For Fitness or Nutrition, I seriously don't think you need to go anywhere else. You can watch videos of proper technique, and even upload your own. You can get advice from doctors and biochemists, and ask about nearly anything, and get an answer from someone who knows from personal experience.

I have to put Ross Enamait's books on there. He's got a lot of useful information and cool training ideas.
